“Getting old is very odd. The main thing is that you have to keep telling yourself, I’m old, I’m old. You see yourself in the mirror as you descend the escalator but you don’t look directly at the mirror, you give a little side glance, a wary smile. You don’t look that bad, you look something like a dusty candle. Too bad screw the gods, screw the game. You should have been dead 35 years ago. This is a little extra scenery, more peeks at the horror show.”
Bukowski, Charles “The Captain is Out to Lunch and the Sailors Have Taken Over”.
Happy Birthday to me. Here’s to getting old but not feeling old!
HAPPY BDAY to you!!!
Muitos parabéns Sara!! Que tenhas um dia fantástico e que o próximo ano te traga tudo de bom! Beijo grande *
The Bukowski quote is perfection.
Happy Birthday, Dear Sara! xoxo
I hope your day was fabulous! Love the Bukowski quote, but dearest you have a lot more birthdays to come before you are “old”, trust an old bat like me who has the mentality of a teen! XXX
Happy birthday! I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award! Take a look here 🙂 http://nomadseekhome.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/liebster-award.html
oh yes, Happy birthday!, and we’re not going to be old, we’re becoming vintage (and über-cool), because we Rock!!
Happiest of birthdays! Getting old ain’t for sissies!
Happy belated birthday!
Happy Birthday, Sara … but please don’t think you’re getting old. You are still just a baby. Wait ’till you’re really old! Either way, it beats the alternative, and growing old is a privilege! Or so I’m told!
